By Melanie

For those of you who would like to add hours to your day, I understand that there is no such thing as adding more time to the clock – it's not even possible, even if we wanted to. However, we can learn some techniques that will make it seem as if we have more time in the day. Below, I am going to give you 7 tips on adding hours to your day …

7 Organize Your Day

Have you ever noticed those with good organization skills seem to manage their time quiet well? Well, that's the trick, if you sit down and organize your day, including the things around you, your day may go smoother. Then, you won't feel as if your brain is in a tangled not.

6 Don't Cry over Spilled Milk

If your day is not going right, don't waste time by crying. Get up and make things right.

5 Stay off of the Phone for Too Long

If the phone is not work related, then stay off of it for too awful wrong. I noticed that when I am on the phone, time really flies and if you do not watch the clock, that time is going to fly.

4 Email Checking Every Hour

If you are like me, you have to constantly monitor your email and you couldn't possibly shut it off. If you do, you could set the automatic message. When you do respond, use "yes" or "no." There is no reason to sit there and type personal emails when you are trying to add more hours to your day.

3 Meetings

Have you ever noticed how when you go to meetings, they tend to lead to a big conversation? I have a trick! Instead of sitting down, stay standing up. This will speed those meetings right along for everyone.

2 Chores

You can cut time on those chores by cooking your dinner in advance, keeping the house tidied up and staying organized.

1 Movies

If you want to add more hours to your work day, then of course, you should avoid watching the television. If I were to sit down in the middle of my work day to watch a movie, it tends to get me off track.

Those are my 7 tips on adding hours to your day. Of course, you should try to avoid naps as much as you can. At least, that is what I try to do. I am the type of person that if I lay down to nap, I find it hard to get up and I don't like mornings, as it is. So, why would I create 2 mornings for myself in one day? Sometimes, a nap is really needed, but if you don't feel that you need it, then don't do it. I just gave you the tips I use to add more hours in my day – I hope you liked them. What do you do so that you will have more time in your day?
